FAQ’s on Laser Hair Removal
Who can get laser hair removal?
Anyone can receive laser hair removal at Integrity Ink! Unlike other providers, our Astanza MeDioStar laser can treat all skin types, even darker skin tones and newly tanned skin!
Which areas can receive treatment?
If there’s unwanted hair on it, we can treat it. The most popular treatment areas are the legs, arms, back, chest, upper lip, underarms, face, and bikini area.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of sessions needed varies on a case-by-case basis depending on your hair and skin type. However, most clients see permanent hair reduction after a minimum of 6 to 10 treatments spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. The 4 to 8 week waiting period is required to target each hair during its anagen phase or when hair is noticeably growing.
Can I shave before treatment?
Yes, we recommend clients to shave immediately before their laser treatment. However, please refrain from epilating, plucking, or waxing any hairs before treatment. Remember, hairs need to be attached to the papilla in order for laser hair removal to be successful.
What kind of results should I expect?
Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment or melanin in hair. All pigmented hair will react well to treatment, but the darker the hair, the better the absorption rate and results. Furthermore, clients with a greater contrast between hair and skin type (i.e. a client with lighter skin and darker hair) will experience faster, more effective results.
Is the laser safe?
Yes! Laser hair removal is an extremely safe procedure. Our laser is FDA approved and uses 360º integrated skin cooling technology to cool the skin immediately before each laser pulse. Our staff uses customizes protocols based on your unique skin and hair type to guarantee the safest treatments and best results.
Are there any side effects?
Laser hair removal is a very safe procedure with limited side effects. The most common side effects clients may experience are redness, itchiness, and swelling of the skin. These side effects are temporary and subside within a couple hours following a treatment. We recommend using aloe vera to soothe the skin and applying sunscreen daily to protect the skin from sun exposure.
